A group of Geauga County residents took off on a road trip Sunday, heading to the Ohio Statehouse, in Columbus with what may be the first attempt to remove a certain public official from office.
Armed with petitions containing nearly 900 signatures, the group called Protect Geauga Parks intended to hold meetings with as many legislators as possible to state their cause for the removal of Geauga County Probate and Juvenile Court Judge Timothy Grendell.

A provision in state law allows state legislators to take action to remove a public official and group members have said that they have the evidence needed to convince legislators.

Editor’s Note: By the time the petitions were delivered to the Legislature, there were over 1000 signatures from citizens of Geauga and neighboring counties in northeast Ohio. It’s the equivalent of a member of the Legislature getting 1000 letters from constituents on a single topic.
